French oak Gothic Revival servery. Item 3584.
This superb quality French oak Gothic Revival servery stands 1610 mm high, measures 1105 mm wide and 630 mm deep. Below the carved and panelled top is a shelf and under that is a Latin quotation, done in blind fretwork, from Psalm 51- “Lavabis me et super nivem dealbabor”, which translates as “Thou wilt wash me and I shall be washed whiter than snow”. Between the top and bottom shelves is a wonderful panelled back. It has retained its original warm, mellow patina and the condition is excellent with the quality, delicacy and condition of the carving a feature. Although I have listed it as a servery or dumb waiter, for which purpose it would serve very well(no pun intended), I suspect it might be a piece of ecclesiastical furniture, possibly from a private chapel. The quality is very good, which you would expect and the condition shows that it has had minimal use. C1870.
